Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark in a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. You can check out the website for registration and to learn more.
